It is said that a single leaf is an ancient heraldic symbol that represents happiness. However it can represent so much more than happiness. In fact the leaf can represent a variety of aspects of one's life as it is a symbol of life.
When leaves fall to the ground they die and turn gold, but the nutrients that are still inside them do not simply vanish or evaporate. Instead, they are absorbed by the soil and redistributed to the roots of nearby trees, thus helping them grow healthier leaves for the next season.
This is symbolic of how death is not entirely the end. As the great Albus Dumbledore pointed out,death is but the next great adventure.Golden leaves thus remind us to always look at the bigger picture to realize that endings are not necessarily bad and may lead to better things in the future.
